.e.a.l.s on the instruction of president obama? >> translator: i would have been happier to see a transparent trial, a formal trial, and find out the root causes of all of the events of the last few years. >> you have been reported as saying that you believe it is possible that the american government were partly responsible for the events of 9/11. that caused a huge outrage. do you stand by that position? >> translator: of course the whole stake inside the united states showed that over 75% of the united states population are still somewhat nebulous about the real reasons of that event or of those events. what i said were a number of questions. an event has occurred. due to that, two countries have been occupied. and the conflict still continues. every day hundreds of people in afghanistan, pakistan and iraq are killed. would it not have been better to have a more precise analysis and find out the true in-depth reason of the events of september 11th, make those findings transparent to the populations and the nations across the world, and then have a response in unison? of course the expense would have been

is going on, have stretched out their plans, barack obama agrees that there would be no taxes in the new budget, just spending cuts. the house democrats and house republicans would not accept that. so i don't think it's the same on both sides, and i think you ought to suggest them also in oklahoma. [laughter] >> i do suggest them in oklahoma and everywhere, all over the country. i think people are going to have different ideas about which party is worse than where they came from. certainly, you mentioned obama's outreach, and i think he did find an outreach. when he did, nancy pelosi said no, we won the election. it is kind of you know, it's kind of hard. some people are saying totally outrageous and nasty things. what we have to do is break it down where people like that can sit down together and say, what is good for the country and not how i can score political points. .. so, i agree with you. i think we need to get past that. we need to get past government is a problem in some areas. government is the solution in seven areas. >> thank you. >> at evening, steve. >> and steve hammock i

to eliminate osama bin laden, i think it was leadership in action when president obama decided to kill osama bin laden. and he did the right thing ordering the troops to do it. but 24 hours later there was one leader that condemned the u.s. for killing one of the greatest leader. do you know who was that leader which condemned the americans? it was the leader of the hamas organization in gaza. he was the only one who say i'm condemning the u.s. for killing a great hero of the arab nation. and on the other end, while sending the troops to kill osama bin laden, the american administration is pressuring israel to sit down and negotiate. but with whom? with the same people who praised osama bin laden? with the same people who teach and incite against jews every day? that is why i think that if we need to get to a point after which we have a decision, we cannot allow the palestinian state. also i don't know how many of you have been to israel, but to get from my hotel to here is almost crossing israel from east to west. the proximity issue is very important, and building an entity of -- [inaudibl
